Save Chelsea | Tin Pan Alley & Old Chelsea Theater District Tour

The founding of Save Chelsea as an organization was spurned by the activism surrounding the establishment of the Chelsea Historic District. Now, years later, we would like to expand on that work to make sure that even more of the irreplaceable fabric of Chelsea is protected. A small sampling of this forthcoming project has been mapped to serve as an introduction to the community, along with other notable points of interest.

Starting in the mid-1800's, the neighborhood of Chelsea was an epicenter of New York City's arts and culture. At its heart was Tin Pan Alley which was famous for the  music publishing houses which operated on West 28th Street. An additional sampling of this tour has been made through our partnership with Urban Archive which can be viewed online or through their mobile app.
